Minty Fresh

There's no denying it.  Mint is the jam right now.  It's kind of a bittersweet moment for me as I've spend most of my life hating mint's cousin, the ever puke inducing sea-foam green.

It goes back to when I was in 6th grade.  I was visiting my dad for the weekend and when I came home, my mom had redecorated my room.  But ya'll, it was like something out of a fluffy nightmare.  I'm talking lacy pillows, curtains, poofy bed linens...the works...all in peach and sea-foam green.  (I die.)

Somehow, peach made it out relatively unscathed, as I still very much like that shade.  However, sea-foam green was not so lucky.  As I said, I've spend a significant amount of time loathing that color.  Then here comes mint....

And I like it.  Now my boyfriend (who I assume is like most of your boyfriends/husbands out there) thinks that there are only about, oh, eight colors total.  He thinks mint is sea-foam green.  {For the record, it is SO not.}

So...basically, I get teased a lot for liking the color. 

Ugh, men. 

I just wanted to share with you today a few of my favorite minty loves.  Maybe, just maybe, if you have some favorites, will you share with me too?  Leave your minty goodness in the comments below.

  3. Mint is amazing, I have the mint sorbet polish by Sally Hansen and I love it! I am being 100% for real, is a paper straw really paper? How does that work...? For serious though, it makes no sense.
